The minimum requirement is 512 MB RAM & 150 MB Hard Drive Space which is enough processing power and storage to cover a full game. To record the video, StatEasy can accept video from any digital video camera. Here are some recommendations.

Encoding is the process of translating video from one format to another. Rather than have a specific format required for StatEasy, we accept all formats, then translate them into one StatEasy can understand. Encoding time is dependent on the size and quality of the video, and the processing speed of the computer.
Uploading is the process of sending video to the StatEasy servers so you can watch it online anytime. Uploading speed is dependent on the size and quality of the video, and you internet connection, i.e., your network speed. To test your internet connection, visit www.speedtest.net. You want to look at the Upload speed. Anything below 1 Mbps will result in lengthy upload times. To increase the speed of your upload, try connecting your computer to an ethernet cable instead of wireless. A hardline will increase your upload speed dramatically.
Much like the Uploading video, watching online videos is dependent on your internet connection, i.e., your network speed. To test your internet connection, visit www.speedtest.net. You want to look at the Download speed. Anything below 2 Mbps will result in lengthy buffer times. To increase the speed of your buffering, try connecting your computer to an ethernet cable instead of wireless. A hardline will decrease buffer times dramatically.
